The UQ School of Education in conjunction with the TC Beirne School of Law are hosting a panel discussion for principals and school leaders about the Implications of the Right to Education in the Human Rights Act 2019.

In February 2019, the Queensland Legislative Assembly passed the Human Rights Act. Uniquely for Australia, this Act provides for both a Right to Education focused on inclusion and equality, and a mechanism to bring complaints to the Human Rights Commission.  

This new right and the new option for complaining have the potential to bring life-changing reforms to the way education is received by individual children with disabilities and other complex needs – but also challenges for school leaders in understanding the implications of the new Act in their work.
